This project has EVERYTHING you need to to teach an unforgettable Great Depression unit. In this project students will learn to create a presentation, a worksheet, and teach a part of the Great Depression to their classmates. I have been doing this project for the past 12 years and it is the most memorial unit I teach. I still have students who come back and say that they will NEVER forget the day that they taught a part of the Great Depression. Check out my website below and watch the videos on students teaching the Great Depression to get an idea of how AMAING this project really is! This project includes:

★ Explanation Slideshow of how the project works, to be shown to students on Day 1 of the project. Deadline slides are included to keep students organized and on task so that they never fall behind.

★ A Teacher Guide to help set up, organize, and make this a successful PBL!

★ An Online Rubric Spreadsheet, so you can shine it up on your Smartboard when the students decide upon each groups grade--YES, the students grade the other students!

★ Group Sheets, with all the information your students will need to complete this project!

★ Classroom Group Signs to Hang Around the Room

★ How to Videos, on how to create a slideshow, add pictures, share with group members, create their own templates, and more...

★ Different Activity Ideas that you can share with your students to make their lessons even better!
